In the wake of largely negative reviews and falling box-office receipts, the current Broadway production of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” starring “Game of Thrones” actress Emilia Clarke, will close on Sunday after opening on March 20 at New York’s Cort Theatre.

The early closure comes after much publicity hype surrounding Clarke’s Broadway debut. The actress has seen her television career soar thanks to HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” In a bit of showbiz synergy, “Thrones” debuted its third season shortly after “Breakfast” opened on Broadway.

This marks the second time that a stage adaptation of Truman Capote’s eternally popular novel has flopped on Broadway. In 1966, the Edward Albee-penned musical adaptation closed while still in preview performances. The new adaptation, which isn’t a musical, is by playwright Richard Greenberg.

“Breakfast” almost didn’t happen this season when an investor unexpectedly dropped out. But producers were able to secure the funds needed to open the show.

Many critics wrote that Clarke wasn’t convincing as the show’s heroine and that she failed to create a compelling character on stage.
